Bretagne is a 16-year-old Golden Retriever. For her 16th birthday, she was recognized in New York for her search and rescue efforts after the attacks of 9/11. Bretagne was recognized in many ways during her visit to New York. Special thanks to 1 Hotel Central Park for a donation of $1,000 to Texas Task Force One for the training of future Search and Rescue Dogs.

National Dog Day 2015

National Dog Day started in 2004 as a way to inform the public of the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year. It also acknowledges family dogs and dogs that work selflessly each day to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort. To find out more about National Dog Day, visit this site http://www.nationaldogday.com/#!about1/c141h.

In honor of National Dog Day, here are some of my favorite ABC pics.
